    By Marisa Finetti

    It is a known fact that a good, complex sparkling wine undergoes secondary fermentation in the bottle under controlled conditions, such as a dark underground cellar. Not the case for this bubbly.

    How to Talk to a Sommelier

  • Guanciale

    Bacon is smothering us! It’s showing up everywhere, even in martinis and cupcakes. Enough is enough. We’ve got a new love, and its name is guanciale. Whereas bacon comes from the belly of the pig, guanciale is cut from the jowl. It’s just as fatty and isn’t smoked, so it tastes somehow porkier than bacon. For Italians, it’s less for eating on its own and more for rendering its fat and flavor, something bona-fide Italian chef Mario Batali is doing with dishes such as Bucatini all’Amatriciana at Otto Las Vegas or guanciale mashed potatoes at Carnevino.

    A Tree Grows in Vegas

    By Debbie Lee

    Las Vegas prides itself on indulging every whim and desire, but meeting the demands of an eco-conscious diner can sometimes be more challenging than catering to a high-roller. How does one reconcile a green lifestyle with a penchant for fine food? While the recent explosion of farmers markets suggests that we’re moving in the right direction, some restaurants are going a step further. Edible gardens—either on-site or within 60 miles of the city—reduce waste, minimize carbon footprints and keep the local farming community alive.

    Pantry Raid

    By Xania V. Woodman

    Farm to table—you may have heard of it? It’s quite the thing, using fresh, locally grown produce (preferably direct from the producer, forager or a farmers market) to make meals the way they once were: seasonal, sustainable, unmodified and likely better for you. But it’s not just what’s for dinner. Farm-to-glass cocktails also capitalize on what’s fresh, local and immediately available.
